Normally the first thing I do when I get a new figure, is transform them once to vehicle mode, than back to bot mode for display. Some figures I just transform for fun, but the ones I refuse to touch... ROTF Leader Optimus: I haven't transformed him once... DOTM Leader Sentinel: Did so once, couldn't make it work, put him back in bot ROTF Leader Megatron: I have no reason to put him in alt mode ROTF Leader Jetfire: Did once, even combined with Optimus, and that was it MP Rodimus(TRU): I bought one and transformed him to car, I didn't even want to change him back to bot mode. So, I went out and bought another Rodimus for bot mode. MP Megatron: I may have transformed him twice, but I won't change him from bot mode ever again Some Alt/binaltech figs I just don't because they don't like staying together. I wouldn't even say I am afraid to transform too many figures besides MP figs.
